A bit of good news for a Friday afternoon…

This week has been great for LimeCulture. Our Core Team met on Wednesday for a team meeting and together we were able to focus on our priorities for the coming months. We’ve got a lot on that we are excited about and we’ve got a few bits of great news that we’d like to share with our supporters, customers, clients & friends. We figured the best way to do this would be through a blog post!  So here goes…

LimeCulture will be recruiting again soon

Yes, that’s right. We are expanding our Core Team again. Our workload has increased and we need to make sure that we are properly resourced in order to deliver on the important work that we are committed to. We are looking for some fantastic team players to join our brilliant, fun and hard-working team.

We will soon be needing two new administrators to support our busy team to carry out the important work that we do. We are currently finalising these job descriptions and once they have been agreed, we will publish the advert, job description and person specifications here. So if you would like to join our team, or know somebody who would love to work with us, please watch this space…as more information will follow over the next week or so!


LimeCulture offers free advanced training to 100 ISVAs

Yes, we did say FREE training! We have now developed Elective 3 of the Advanced Development Programme (ADP) for experienced ISVAs, which will focus on supporting older people.

We know that older people also experience sexual violence, but they tend to be under represented in official crime reports and in sexual violence services too. However, we know that older people should be able to benefit from support from ISVA services, and we’re keen to ensure that ISVAs feel able to effectively support this hidden group too. LimeCulture have worked with Age UK and other partners to develop a brand new course to assist ISVAs support older people who have experienced sexual violence. The best bit is that we are able to deliver this course free of charge to 100 accredited ISVAs!

Our ambition is to see a geographical spread of this important specialism, so we will be delivering the course in various locations across the country over the summer and autumn months. To ensure the spread of this specialism, we propose to offer each ISVA Service a free place to allow every ISVA service to support older people more effectively by having an ISVA with specialist training, skills and knowledge.  It is important to note, that this training is ONLY available to fully trained ISVAs who have completed their full accredited ISVA Development Programme. More information about how to book a place on the new Advanced Development Programme, Elective 3, will follow over the coming weeks! So look out for it!


Keir Starmer will be chairing 2018’s Knowledge & Network Event, the National ISVA Conference 

Finally, it is with huge pleasure that we announce that the Chair of the 2018 National ISVA Conference will be Sir Keir Starmer, QC MP.

Those of you who attended the 2016 Conference will recall that Keir was a truly excellent and inspiring Chair…so we were thrilled when he told us that he would be honoured to chair this year’s conference again.

Knowledge & Network, the National ISVA Conference will take place in Birmingham on 17 October 2018….and we can’t wait! The conference will open for bookings on 1 June, along with the nominations for the LimeLight Awards.
